WARNER ROBINS -- Warner Robins City Council voted unanimously Wednesday in a called meeting to approve an unchanged millage rate for fiscal 2012.
The millage rate will remain at 9.99 mills for a second year. Last year, City Council raised the millage rate 0.648 mills to offset a nearly $14 million decrease in property values.
Councilman Mike Brashear said council was able to decrease expenditures for fiscal 2013 because the Houston County voters approved the 2012 special purpose local option sales tax, which has $44.4 million earmarked for Warner Robins capital improvement items and projects.
The city is expected to receive $16.6 million in revenue for its general fund through property taxes, a 3.5 percent increase from last year, according to the city clerks office.
Property taxes, based on the propertys value and the millage rate, are due Dec. 28.
